RTI International developed a polymer nanofiber material with nanoscale properties that provides cost-effective management of visible light in a solid-state lighting device. This video shows prototypes of unique lighting device designs incorporating the technology.

RTI's technology - which was funded in part by the Department of Energy's Solid-State Lighting program - centers around advancements in the nanoscale properties of materials to create high-performance, nanofiber-based reflectors and photoluminescent nanofibers (PLN). When the two nanoscale technologies are combined, a high-efficiency lighting device is produced that is capable of generating in excess of 55 lumens of light output per electrical watt consumed.
